We previously wrote about Vitalik Buterin’s support for Ukraine. And the other day, the co-founder of Ethereum sent 1,500 ETH (over $4.7 million at the time of writing) to support Ukraine.
We’re incredibly grateful for @VitalikButerin support and donation of 750ETH!
Besides Unchain Fund, Vitalik has also donated the same amount to @Ukraine.
1500ETH = ~$5m that will make a difference for those in need in Ukraine! 🇺🇦
Thank you, Vitalik & Ethereum fam! 🙏🏻💛💙 pic.twitter.com/RSGy4q2TY7

The amount was transferred in two transactions: to the Unchain Ukraine fund, which is engaged in humanitarian assistance to Ukrainians, and also to the wallets of the Ukrainian crypto fund.
According to Buterin, the war reminded the cryptocurrency community that the purpose of digital assets is to bring real benefits to people.
